Cameroon vs Tunisia, World Cup Playoff 2nd Leg: Open Thread

world cup brazil Cameroon vs Tunisia, World Cup Playoff 2nd Leg: Open Thread

Nigeria and Ivory Coast have already qualified for World Cup 2014 this weekend. Next we’ll see if either Cameroon or Tunisia qualify for Brazil.

Cameroon got a solid 0-0 draw in Tunisia in the first leg, and will fancy their chances to qualify at home. Inspirational striker Samuel Eto’o is back on form, and back in the good graces of the Cameroon Football Federation after quitting the team and being reinstated all in the last few months.

Programming note: Watch Cameroon vs Tunisia today at 9:30am ET on beIN SPORTbeIN SPORT Espanol and DishWorld  Even if you don’t have a TV subscription to beIN SPORT, you can access those channels via online streaming service DishWorld for $10/month.

Cameroon have traditionally been at World Cups since the days of Roger Milla in 1990, while Tunisia are looking to go for only the second time. Things could get hairy for Cameroon if Tunisia score, since they would lose on an away goals tiebreaker if the game ended in a tie.

Starting line-ups:

Cameroon: Charles Itandje – Stephane Mbia, Benoit Assou Ekotto, Nicolas Nkoulou – Aurelien Chedjou, Alex Song, Jean Makoun, Eyong Enoh – Benjamin Moukandjo, Samuel Eto’o, Achille Webo.

Tunisia: Moez Ben Cherifia – Sameh Derbali, Karim Haggui, Syam Ben Youssef, Yassine Mikari – Houcine Ragued, Wissem Ben Yahia, Yassine Chikhaoui, Fakhreddine Ben Youssef – Saber Khalifa, Amine Chermiti.
